Enchanted Tiki Luau Blow-Out
An Egyptian Theatre exclusive!



After the success of our Tiki events the past three summers, we're back again with more exotic ephemera: more fun feature films, diverting oddball shorts, vendors, food, music and more! We'll be showing old-school island adventure pics FAIR WIND TO JAVA, ALOMA OF THE SOUTH SEAS and HER JUNGLE LOVE (all in gorgeously saturated color) will screen along with artist Kevin Kidney's collection of rare, island-themed TV surprises. Join us in the Egyptian's Courtyard for a Royal Southern California-style Luau with exotic musical entertainment from King Kukelele and his Friki Tikis and the Polynesian Paradise Dancers. There will also be Tiki vendors and other special surprises in the courtyard on Saturday from 1:00 PM until we shut it down.

Friday, July 25 – 7:30 PM

Tiki Double Feature:

FAIR WIND TO JAVA, 1953, Paramount, 92 min. Dir. Joseph Kane. Fred MacMurray, captain of a late 19th-century ship in the East Indies, makes like an early Indiana Jones searching for a sunken vessel laden with a fortune in diamonds. But he has to keep looking over his shoulder when cunning, bloodthirsty pirates, an angry volcano and last, but not least, a smitten native girl (Vera Ralston) start to gum up the works. Gorgeous color adventure antics in true Republic Pictures style. Preserved by UCLA with funds from the Film Foundation. More on this Movie! NOT ON DVD

ALOMA OF THE SOUTH SEAS, 1941, Universal, 71 min. Dir. Alfred Santell. As a boy, native Jon Hall is sent to be educated in England. But he returns to his island home to stop a revolution and promptly falls into the arms of first love Dorothy Lamour. Although shot on Paramount backlots, the color cinematography was nominated for an Oscar, as were the special effects – a spectacular earthquake and erupting volcano put an exclamation point on the climactic finale. A kitschy remake of the silent classic. NOT ON DVD


Saturday, July 26 – 5:00 PM

LUAU DINNER Join us in the Egyptian Courtyard for a Royal Southern California-style Luau with live music from King Kukelele and his Friki Tikis, the Polynesian Paradise Dancers, vendors and a bountiful island-themed dinner.

On Saturday, July 26th you have 3 ticket options:

1) Movie Program Only (valid for 7:30 PM film on 7/26 only, regular film prices); 2) Luau Dinner Only: $22; 3) Movie Program, plus Luau: General: $29; Senior/Student: $27; Cinematheque Member: $26. *50 dinners will be sold at the door. To guarantee a dinner ticket please purchase in advance.

*50 dinners will be sold at the door. To guarantee a dinner ticket please purchase in advance.



Saturday, July 26 – 7:30 PM

Tiki Clip Show and Film

"Tiki on TV" Approx. 30 min. Watch seldom-seen Tiki TV classics presented by Los Angeles artist Kevin Kidney. Just as mainland Tiki restaurants and watering holes perfected the artifice of exotic environments, Hollywood's hills and backlots masqueraded as the island tropics for television viewers of the '50s and '60s. Filled with clip highlights from the shows themselves, Kevin's program will include never-before-seen images and fascinating ephemera -- and explore how these programs influenced other areas of midcentury American culture, from nightlife to travel.

HER JUNGLE LOVE, 1938, Universal, 81 min. Dir. George Archainbaud. Aviator Ray Milland and partner Lynne Overman are searching for a missing plane when they're marooned on what seems like a deserted island. Deserted -- except for the lovely Dorothy Lamour, who is a goddess to the natives of the adjoining isles and is soon being romanced by hero Milland. Neighboring native chief J. Carroll Naish hates white men and soon slots our heroes for sacrifice to crocodiles. But villain Naish doesn't count on having to deal with the obligatory erupting volcano. Supremely entertaining, in sumptuous color. More on this movie! NOT ON DVD

Hope to see all of you Tiki Central members there!

I'm really looking forward to this, every year is a blast. Its great to have a luau in the most unexpected place. In Hollywood just a few feet away from the old Don The Beachcomber and only a couple miles from the Tiki Ti.

Thanks Joe! I love that picture. Its hard to get shots at the Egyptian that LOOK like they were taken at the Egyptian. I like that whole look of Black and White, circa 1922, "We just discovered King Tut's tomb so LET'S HAVE A LUAU !!"

HEY! How come Tom Slick can't work AND make it to the Luau. They say the Thunderbolt Greeseslapper can go 0-100 in 3 seconds flat. Maybe we should work on helping you get fired!

Hey Skinny Dog Jen! I'll be selling there too. I'll have paintings, plus several new tiki items that, well, aren't paintings...

It was great meeting you at the Tiki Freakout show, looking forward to seeing you and Scott again!
